Open Cell Spray Foam

"Installers of Icynene, the leading brand of open-cell spray foam, have been known to tell builders that their insulation can be installed without a vapor barrier, or even, in some cases, that the foam is a vapor barrier." Prepared by Energy Design Update

"To match the poor performance of leaky fiberglass-insulated homes, all an Icynene contractor has to do is skimp on insulation thickness… Any building department that, based on Icynene’s arguments, allows builders following the prescriptive code to install less than the minimum required thickness of insulation is failing in its duty to enforce the code."

"The building was reinsulated with closed-cell polyurethane foam." Prepared by Energy Design Update
